Sound — 3
I am in a downlow in life, a country in shit, my setup was all sold to pay bills, and now I am trying to get back on the track, so I have only a B.C. Rich Flying V customized by me (horns removed from head). Love the feel of the guitar and sound. But not in the V AMP. The only good thing about this is the tuner, and the "British high gain" sound.
Overall Impression — 3
I play a genre that is evolving now in Finland a lot, a mix of metal, new metal with rock and gothlike moods. Baritone guitars. A bit "Type O Negative and HIM-ish!". I wish some one told me that V-AMP 3 is just V-AMP 2 painted red and with shinnyer knobs and ONE better distortion also. I seen a video online and it FINALLY seemed that some one brought back the true CHORUS sound (like Paradise Lost in "Draconian Times"), but no... Same old crappy chorus. I'm gonna try it with speaker bypass and other bypasses in rehearsal, maybe I'll change my mind from rating 1 to... 3... I wished that Behringer at least made the package as the V AMP 2, I would rather a footswitch then this crappy USB useless piece. No latency my a-s. Phones monitoring, my a-s!
Reliability & Durability — 1
I wouldn't use it IN A REHARSAL ROOM! I would use it on a gig as a TUNER... A big fat tuner only. And before the gig, not during, cause the f--kin thing is made for guitar players, and has nothing for your feet (your hands are busy with the guitar DUHHH!).
Ease of Use — 1
Well, it is pretty easy to get SOUND of it. Good sound, it is impossible. It's just plastic and weak digital crap. Sorry, but, I bought it today, hoping that I could get all into one: something to record with no latency (what a lie) at home, vocals, and guitar, just for a few notes, and this thing doesn't work for nothing. That useless UCA222 with RCA in... 4 RCA ins and outs!?! WTF!? What for? Why not a JACK IN and a JACK OUT? Why complicating? This crap is useless. Tried with a lot of softwares, nothing. Half a click latency. Always. Record, and have to adjust. It's all easy to do. But worthless.
